Cheers phil i do like the look from the front and now that it sits a bit lower its got a more menacing broken suspension look ;)

Thanks for posting up other pics Alistair and i can tell you all the work done on the brakes and suspension really have paid off i can place the car exactly where i want to which is a great feeling :D

I do plan on fitting some track rubber to the PIAA rims Mart as theyre the lightest and strongest wheels i have - im sure i read somewhere that they are very good on track especially in the corners due to the way they are constructed. Im not 100% decided on what to do :?

I tried that approach with Nathan as i want his wings west side skirts to complete the set but he wasnt having any of it and neither am i :P

My future plans are:
Lightened flywheel - Fidenza 8lb flwheel ordered
Uprated Clutch - Exedy clutch kit ordered - might go with an OEM clutch out ATR not decided yet will have a look at the exedy one when it arrives.
Chipped ECU - One of Nuculezstyle (Rob) - do i wait for results in on V3&4 or just go for V2?????? im away out to check my limiter as im sure it goes past 8000rpm....
Bodywork - Sideskirts and respray -probably try and do it myself and make a mess of it :roll: This is last on the list.

Looking nice bud - I still think you need to spray the rest in red, but it's your motor. I just know how good the red can look. :wink:

Some nice choice mods next up.

As for the V3 & V4, the guy who was going to Dyno them all back to back has had a compression loss, so is looking for a new engine and stuff, so isn't bothering with any dyno runs right now. :(

Still can't believe NO-ONE has Dyno'd any of the chips - at all. £10 sterling pounds to the first person - about a third/quarter of the dyno price probably. :wink:

Keep it up bud. I await the next updates.

Cheers,

Rob
